Less than 1% of the earth’s water supply can be used for drinking.

Leaving the tap running while you clean your teeth can waste nine litres of water.

A five minute shower uses about a third of the water of a bath, saving up to 400 litres per week.

About 74% of home water usage is in the bathroom, about 21% is for laundry and cleaning, and about 5% is in the kitchen.

When YOU use water wisely,

  • You are helping the environment.
  • You are saving the energy that the water supplier used to treat the water that has been used up.
  • You are saving our pocket money. 

We all know that water is very precious for every living organisms as they depend and need water to stay alive on Earth. In order to survive, we have to conserve water as day by day people used up our planet's fresh water than it can naturally be replenished. Don't you agree?

There are a number of ways to save water, and they all start with you.

When washing dishes by hand, don't let the water run while rinsing. Fill one sink with wash water and the other with rinse water.

Some refrigerators, air conditioners and ice-makers are cooled with wasted flows of water. Consider upgrading with air-cooled appliances for significant water savings.

Adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk, or street.

Run your clothes washer and dishwasher only when they are full. You can save up to 1,000 gallons a month.
